RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Hurricane Ian tore through western Florida last week, leaving a path of destruction is its wake.

Though the storm had weakened significantly by the time it reached Virginia, it was still strong enough to bring flooding and winds strong enough to knock down trees to the Norfolk area.

Below are images showing how the winds, rain and tides affected Virginia, particularly in the coastal areas. The forecast for central Virginia is predicting rain for the next few days with coastal flooding.
